Ubuntu is a popular desktop OS, which uses the Linux kernel, but its server edition is getting pretty popular as well. The main reason is the fact that the OS is really light and it'll run on almost any hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the max. Ubuntu is also pretty reliable and secure and all of the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a protected and stable software environment on your hosting server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the biggest user communities worldwide, which means that if you experience any difficulty or have any kind of question, you'll find numerous resources on the web. Among the key benefits of this Operating System is that it has tens of thousands of software packages that can be easily modified in accordance with your needs as well as the needs of the applications that you intend to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees any time. In comparison, other OS's are paid and their code is not accessible, therefore it can't be changed.
Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers
We provide Ubuntu with all of our dedicated server packages and if you need this Operating System, you can choose the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition with only a click on the order page. We supply two editions, to make sure that the server meets the requirements of the software that you would like to install. The full root access to the server will enable you to set up various other software, as the only pre-installed app is the Apache web server. You're able to access the server securely through a console, but if you would like to use a web interface, you are free to install any Control Panel which can function on an Ubuntu-powered machine. If you want to focus your efforts on the content and not on server maintenance tasks, you'll be able to add our Managed Services upgrade and we will handle a variety of tasks for you, which includes regular Operating System updates.
